Ryan Broyles starts running in a pool

It’s been a little more than two months since Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore the ACL in his right knee, but his rehab is already picking up steam.

Broyles tweeted a picture of him in a running pool at Lions headquarters, kicking off his second straight year spent recovering from the same injury. Broyles came into the league after tearing his left ACL during his final season at Oklahoma, something he thinks will help him make an easier recovery this time around.

“Going through the process last time with the injury that I had I understand what I have to do this time to come back,” Broyles said, via the Lions website. “I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’m always up for it. Definitely shooting for Week One.”

Broyles said last month that he wanted to pick Adrian Peterson’s brain for information about how he made such a successful recovery from his own torn ACL. Whether he’s heard from his fellow Sooner product or not, his comeback seems to be going well thus far.

    Titus Young is also running in a pool, except he’s intentionally running the wrong routes.

    Broyles appears to be a class act, so how can you not pull for him in a comeback?

    The kid could easily catch 80 balls and 10 TDs opposite Megatron if he can make it all the way back.

    “Roid up. AP did.”

    Congratulations on being incredibly ignorant. Steroids do nothing to help repair ligaments. In fact, they actually have the opposite effect: your muscles often grow at a rate in which strains the ligaments. Keep up the good work though!

    Next he’ll try swimming on a grass field.

    The Lions just released Titus Young per Tim Twentyman…Time to step up Ryan!

    Don’t worry about getting back to him AP. I’ll tell him your secret. HGH and deer antlers.

    Lol at a Steelers fan accusing players of other teams of “roiding up.”

    Instead of bringing up the obvious – the fact that everybody on the Steelers was juicing in the 1970’s – I’ll bring up something more recent.

    Just last year, the former team doctor of the Steelers was charged with illegally distributing anabolic steroids.

    But yeah, I’m sure that doctor never, ever gave any of that stuff to the Steelers’ massive linebackers. *rolls eyes*

    This is funny. I just started peeing in pools.

    In all seriousness, you guys should try it. Very liberating.
